Which is the Best Tummy Tuck Procedure After a C-Section?

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on October 3, 2013

7One of the most important elements in assuring that you have selected the best possible plastic surgeon is how responsible he or she is regarding the selection and timing of a procedure. For women looking for a tummy tuck after a C-section, is it essential that a Board Certified plastic surgeon is consulted.

Taking Time for a Full Recovery

At Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery we are extremely sensitive to the desire a woman may have for a contoured abdomen after having a Cesarean. This being said, we are never in a rush to recommend surgery. After pregnancy, the body needs time to return to its normal shape, so it is never advisable to jump to a tummy tuck until full recovery is accomplished.

Finding a Balanced State of Health

After pregnancy, the skin and muscles in the abdominal area have stretched to full capacity in order to accommodate the growth of the fetus. Once this area has contracted, the tissues also need to return to normal in order for the body to find a balanced state of health. Interfering with this natural process is never advisable. Usually the recuperation period is six to twelve months, which also corresponds to the time you need to tend to your newborn without being in a state of extra physical stress due to an untimely procedure.

Deciding Not to Have Another Pregnancy

Once you have fully recovered, it is highly advisable that you also make the decision not to have another pregnancy before you choose a tummy tuck. This is to ensure that the muscles and skin will not stretch again, which would negate the procedure.

Your Complete Examination

Dr. Bernabe Vazquez of Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery will then be happy to give you a complete examination to determine your readiness for a tummy tuck. Here you will understand the possible risks, which in his expert hands are rare. You will also be advised on what to expect for preparation, and then for after care, which will include a diet and exercise plan for maintaining your beautiful new look.With the advent of Dr. Vazquez’s Miami Tummy Tuck, a procedure he has perfected to ensure the least amount of scarring and the fasting healing, this would likely be the best option once your C-section recovery is complete.

Less Invasion, Better Results

The Miami Tummy Tuck combines the relatively non-invasive procedure called Liposuction to pull out excess fat before surgery. With this technique, less cutting is required, which also means minimal, if any, drainage.

The Perfect Silhouette

The Miami Tummy Tuck creates a much shorter scar than with conventional tummy tucks, which means you will be able to show off a beautiful torso once again. Performing tummy tucks and other procedures for over 25 years, Dr. Vazquez’s expert hand and sensitive approach will create the perfect silhouette for your particular body type.
